💜💜💜THE KOREAN MORNING ROUTINE💜💜💜 It may sound extensive, but most Korean women use an 8 and 10-step skincare routine each and every day to help keep their skin looking healthy and beautiful.
💋Step One: Oil Cleanser
Purpose: Applied to dry skin, an oil cleanser removes makeup and any other oil-based product debris like sunscreen and pollution particles.
💋Step Two: Water-based / Foam Cleanser
Purpose: Believe it or not, after one cleanse, you’re still going to have stuff left over. This water-based cleanser is applied to wet skin and removes impurities like sweat and dirt.
💋Step Three: Exfoliator
Purpose: Exfoliation not only cleans out clogged pores, but it also sloughs off dead skin cells. When you remove this dull layer of cells, brighter skin is revealed. This step is not recommended for daily use. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll only want to exfoliate once a week.
💋Step Four: Toner
Purpose: The toner acts as a way to prep the skin, so it’ll absorb the following treatments better.
💋Step Five: Essence
Purpose: The essence is really the heart of Korean skin care, a step that is credited to their culture. It is the most important parts of the routine
💋Step Six: Serum, Boosters, or Ampoule Treatments
Purpose: This is not a necessary step for everyone. If you don’t have brown spots or pigmentation, or acne breakouts, you don’t really need to use [a treatment].
💋Step Seven: Sheet Mask
Purpose: The sheet mask is a Korean beauty favourite – a cloth saturated with skin loving ingredients! Perfect for all skin types, everyone can benefit from these masks which deliver a deeply hydrating and anti-ageing treatment.
💋Step Eight: Eye Cream
Purpose: To protect and hydrate the delicate eye area.
💋Step Nine: Moisturiser
Purpose: This step is simply to lock in skin’s moisture. Next to daily SPF, skin hydration is key for supple, younger-looking skin at all ages.
💋Step Ten: SPF
Purpose: It seems self-explanatory, but we can never stress enough how important sun protection is on a daily basis. Applying SPF regularly is the biggest differentiator in the Korean regimen.
